In Collision Low Crossers: A Year Inside the Turbulent World of NFL Football he describes the Combine, the draft, the practices, and the strategy meetings. He profiles the Jets' polarizing head coach, Rex Ryan, the general manager, the coaches, players like the cornerback Darrelle Revis, quarterback Mark Sanchez, and the safeties, linebackers, cornerbacks, and enthusiastic rookies who play the game.

I often find segments I don't think will be interesting to be interesting. This isn't one of those instances. I can't wait for this interview to conclude....

COACHING is HUGE! It may be the most important part of a team's success! I believe when Bill Parcells came to the Jets, he catapulted the level of play of the team and the quality of the organization ten-fold! Talent does certainly have it's place, as could be determined when Ryan first came to the Jets, the team was full of talent and were easier to coach. He had some great coaches around him as well. Plus, the Patriots are a good example of the importance of talent. Brady is amazing, unfortunately for this die-hard Jet fan!
